We are filled with so much joy, our second baby blessing has arrived:
Natalie Rose Whitley
born October 31, 2014 at 11:58pm
8 lbs 3 oz and 20″ long.
Natalie arrived zippy fast via VBAC Friday just before midnight and is the cutest little pumpkin we know. She has a head of thick, dark hair, a tiny chin and is so snuggly sleepy. She’s absolutely perfect — I feel so very blessed to be holding her in my arms, resting at home.
Maxwell isn’t holding back his love for her, either. He’s full of kisses, hugs, curiosity and has even offered her his pacifier. He’s transitioning to his new role very well, although I’m sure some natural struggles will come our way soon.
We are celebrating sweet Natalie’s arrival and like I said, I am filled to the brim with joy. xoxo
Oh my goodness, sooooooo happy for you! I just clicked over this morning to check in and – yippee!!!! Lots of praises to Him for a smooth (and quick!) VBAC and a gorgeous new wee one (and now my baby bug is biting hard ….). Enjoy, sweet Mama!
Welcome to the world sweet baby Natalie!!! Oh my goodness you are so very blessed :) Enjoy every moment, especially watching the love develop between your two sweet sweet kids!
Absolutely beautiful! Congratulations to you and your family! I’m so looking forward to photos of big brother and sister together. Hope you are resting and recovering!
Congratulations, sweet friend!!! My heart is bursting with JOY for you as well!!!! Thankful for His protection over you and baby Natalie and that you were able to enjoy this birth to the fullest! Wishing SO very much I could swing by for some snuggles and time with you, but since distance prevents that (at this time) …. know that I’m sending lots of love and hugs to all of you!!!
